Watch: Lion in middle of road in Gujarat, caught on camera by forest guard
A video of a forest guard 'pleading' with a lion in Gujarat's Gir Forest has gone viral. The forest guard encountered the lion on his way back home at night. Blocking his way, the king of the jungle was sitting in the middle of a pitch-dark road. The bone-chilling incident was captured by Guard Mahesh Sondarva. In the video, the forest guard is heard 'pleading' in Gujarati. After Sondarva's several efforts, the lion made a move and walked into the forest. Later, the video was shared by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Dr Anshuman on his Twitter handle. Anshuman serves as the deputy conservator of forest (DCF) in Gir East. The video has garnered more than 5,000 views and hundreds of likes.
